Did a quick test on Raring-5.6.94.
3 consecutive search & export results - no hangs, so far.
The older version sometimes (not always) froze on export.
Can you also make a deb package, or just show a strictly Debian structure? I like pfind and want to install it in my self made Debian Live builds.

Thank you in advance.

Hi Sigmund,

I (only I?) like a animated figure as a search assistant. Accidentally in XP there is a dog, looks so nice as Puppy Smile.
It would be neat to get the same dog. But maybe it could be too difficult to integrate it?

Regards from Vienna,
Walter

Never mind, Fredx has already taken care of pfind.deb:

I think, I can repack it.

As far as I know, animations in the Puppy environment is doable, but troublesome:
- pFind itself can loop images to show an animation, but this requires too much of the systems resources.
- Gif animations are supported, but these doesn't look good,
- Libsvg does not support animated vector code, and this is the logic approach as I see it.

An even if we could support animations, I feel certain that many users would be against it, as it WILL occupy a noticeable part of the cpu.

Hi Sigmund,
many thanks for that more and more handy app ! Smile
Here cannot modify the exclude path (not present in /root/.pfind/pfindrc ... Question ) ... it was already the case in 5.11: i tried to modify the path through the menu File/configure/general thumbnail and "modify search options" .. but pfinds exclude path keeps sticked on *initrd/pup_*
Any other way to set the path ?
Cheers, Charlie

Should I remove a built-in version of Pfind before installing the latest version, or simply install the new version?

thanks

It will place itself on top of the old.

hello im using pfind 5.11 and there is a problem that pfind/func -build_treeitems needs to use separate file that is not being monitored to prevent slow down of displaying a large number of search results. i modified it to start with:
Code:
-build_treeitems)
   >/tmp/pfind-treeitems$PROGPID
   >/tmp/pfind-treeitemsx$PROGPID
   ... #original code but using the x name
   mv /tmp/pfind-treeitemsx$PROGPID /tmp/pfind-treeitems$PROGPID
   ;;

it was very noticable on my system, if you actually change this i was guessed you might want to instead change the tree to monitor pfind-treeitems-final because that is a better than the x name but you'd have to modify 2 files
i also had an issue using Open with TextEditor and had to set it to use this script instead of a texteditor (this might have been fixed in 5.12 though):
Code:
#!/bin/sh
for a in $@
do b=$(readlink $a)
defaulttexteditor "$b" & rm $a
done

Wow, that was a really good catch Smile

I checked the 'Open with texteditor', and it works for me with 5.12. Could you please test 5.13?

I've been using Pfind for years and its always getting better, I only have one issue with it, When I copy text from a console and paste it in pfind in the search box, usually it copies the text already in the search box "Search text" and paste that, then I have to delete the "Search text" and recopy the text and paste it. I would like to see the "Search text" removed. would make life much easier. Smile

I have had the same issue in firefox for ages and still wonder about the reason. Can anyone help out?
